Karlskirche

Karlskirche is located near Karlsplatz in the 4th district of Vienna, near the 1st district and the famous shopping street Kärtnerstraße and Naschmarkt.

It unites elements of the christian and islamic sacred buildings because it should symbolize the alliance between Rome and Byzantium.
For me it is one of the most beautiful churches in Vienna. Even though you may not be able to go and have a visit, you can enjoy a virtuel tour on their website: http://www.karlskirche.at/tour.html

The park surrounding the church is great to meet friends or to just rest your feet from walking around Vienna while enjoying a nice view on the church.
